First, Kat Graham (Bonnie Bennett) compares Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 1, “Growing Pains” to being thrown into a pit of alligators. Then we learn that Season 4, Episode 7 requires live viewing, snacks, and liquor (for the over 21-year-olds), via TVLine. Our hearts can only take so much anticipation.

Speaking of which, if you’ve been missing those halcyon days when Elena (Nina Dobrev) would sit in cemeteries, scribbling in her journal, prepare yourself: TV Guide reports her diary will make a grand comeback. Elena’s going to be in emotional overdrive, and what better way to cope with blood cravings and boy drama than writing it all down in a lockable book? 

Let’s hope she steals a line from Stefan (Paul Wesley): “Dear Diary, I’m freaking hungry!”
